Teeth Whitening Q & A

What are the causes of yellow teeth?

A variety of factors lead to your teeth turning yellow. Certain medications, age, and the things you drink and eat can all contribute. Surface stains on the enamel of your teeth from drinks like tea, coffee, and red wine, can make your teeth appear yellowish. Smoking and tobacco are also big culprits.

Eventually, the surface stains can get even more challenging to get rid of, because they soak deep into the enamel of your tooth to the dentin.

Is whitening your teeth safe?

Certainly. Teeth whitening is not harmful if you comply with product directions and guidelines. The professionals at Allure Dental Care of Maple Lawn offer Zoom whitening treatments for safe, reliable results. You may prefer to get your teeth whitened in only one appointment if you have a busy schedule, or steadily over time with a take-home teeth whitening kit.

In both cases, the Zoom whitening solution is completely safe to put on your teeth and in your mouth. Note that the bleaching agents may cause some non-permanent gum and tooth sensitivity, but this is the only discomfort you might feel.

How does the Zoom in-office procedure work?

A simple Zoom in-office teeth-whitening procedure could make your teeth up to eight shades brighter after just one appointment.* At your appointment, one of the experienced Allure Dental Care of Maple Lawn team members fits upper and lower dental trays into your mouth. The trays hold the bleaching solution.

Your dental professional will cover your gums and lips to protect them from the solution. The trays are filled with the whitening gel and a unique LED lamp is positioned over your teeth. You sit back and relax as the bleach and light combine to whiten your teeth during three 15-minute treatments, all happening in a single visit.

Between these 15-minute treatments, you wait comfortably, and following the final bleaching treatment, your dental expert covers your teeth in a post-treatment gel to reduce any sensitivity you might have after the whitening. Then it’s finished. Your teeth are whiter, and your smile is brighter in about two hours.

If you'd rather whiten your teeth gradually over the course of a few weeks, ask the Allure Dental Care of Maple Lawn for an at-home teeth-whitening kit.
